Owner of Exploded Rig Exploits Offshore Status

Owner of Exploded Rig Exploits Offshore Status 08 Jul 2010 Transocean is the world’s largest offshore drilling company, but until its Deepwater Horizon rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in April, few Americans outside the energy business had heard of it. It is well known, however, in a number of other countries -- for testing local laws and regulations. Human rights advocates have called for an investigation into Transocean’s recent dealings in Myanmar... In Norway, Transocean is the subject of a criminal investigation into possible tax fraud. And in the United States, a federal bankruptcy judge recently found that one of Transocean’s merger partners had repeatedly abused the legal system to try to avoid potential liability in a pollution case in Louisiana. Transocean is also the target of tax inquiries in the United States and Brazil.
